The Nurses' Inn and National Nursing Museum Startup Phase

The Nurses' Inn and National Nursing Museum Startup Phase

From James M Harvey Jr

We were gifted an historic hospital property that we want to create a national nursing museum. We are raising funds so we can pay the outstanding property taxes and install security fencing so we can start renovations.

Located outside of Atlanta at 522 Meriwether Street in Griffin, Georgia, the former site of the Griffin Hospital and Nurses’ Home is under way to becoming The Nurses’ Inn and National Nursing Museum. 

The renovation project will begin at the historic hospital site at Meriwether and West College Streets and expand the Nursing Museum into a national attraction to preserve the rich nursing history within the United States. 

Many monuments of deserving heroes exist throughout our nation, but none exist for one of the oldest groups of licensed professionals...nurses.

Nurses remain the front-line healthcare providers for our nation in the midst of a critical nursing shortage, which is projected to increase in the years to come largely due to an aging Baby Boomer population and patients who are more acutely ill than ever before. 

The National Nursing Museum will exist for all ages and include exhibit space for nursing history, a career development center, simulation and technology space, and an educational conference center. 

The simulation labs will provide an opportunity for technology and hands-on demonstrations for equipment such as Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), airway, anatomy and vascular access demonstrations. Sponsors are welcomed from all STEM-related areas (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) as it applies to nursing, with applications in a wide range of career fields such as pharmaceuticals, research and microbiology. 

Griffin, Georgia is the ideal location for the Nurses’ Inn and Nursing Museum. Griffin is located approximately 35 minutes from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and is a very appealing city with a great quality of life. Griffin is home to Southern Crescent Technical College and a University of Georgia campus, making it ideal for tourism and a variety of nursing and medical conferences. 

Before renovations can begin, we would like to first pay the outstanding property taxes we inherited when we were gifted the property and to install security fencing around the property to that equipment can be transported and stored on site so we can begin renovating the building.

The result will be a first class lodging, museum and education facility that will become a neighborhood and community asset for many years to come.  We hope you will give and support our efforts so we can begin the renovation process. Thank you for your support.
